Yes, that's the general rule of thumb for K-1 as far as I understand it. We only "pass through" the NVC... on our way to the Consulate/Embassy.


~ Jan ??,2013 ~ Service Center ~ Vermont I-129F Packet sent

NOTE: Actual sent date unknown due to lawyer negligence - I delivered ALLForms and PAID Lawyer on Nov 7, 2012 - Lawyer kept saying he sent the packet and USCIS must have lost it. When in reality he failed to send the package and only a new copy to USCIS after I made a legal written demand giving him 10 days to perform or return ALL monies paid to him, due to "non-performance".

(IMO it's better to save your money for visits to or from your Fiancé and just fill it out yourself using the K-1 Guide on VJ and Senior Members... They Rock!!!)

Mostly this is true, but now and then they put approved K1's into AP at the NVC stage. Just to be aware that it does happen.


I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

If I'm not mistaken I've seen you mention you are the beneficiary? The NOA2 hard copy goes to the petitioner. If they haven't received it yet, I second following up with USCIS. You'll need it later on.

Thanks to everybody for ur response..... so i will receive mu NOA2 soon???

It took a week after approval on the USCIS website when my fiance finally received NOA-2 hardcopy. Since your I-129F was processing at TSC, better to call NVC or Departmen of State (DoS) at Visa Unit to get your case number immediately. I've got my case number 2 weeks after approval date. See my timeline to get an estimate times for each stage even though may vary to many others. Good luck!
